As the group was entering Vyjorst Forest, a strange event was taking place at the bottom of Lake Xuwhyl. A meteor had long ago fallen into Lake Xuwhyl, and now the meteor began to shake violently. The meteor burst open with blinding light and deafening noise. Within the meteor lay a creature. Her body was composed of fire. Her eyes were padparadscha gemstones. There had been an ancient legend in the area of a creature that was similar. It called her the Netagoriosufotra, which meant the one who cleanses with fire.
After the meteor had burst open, a sudden rush of water hit her. The water had severely injured her. It had however created a patchy, hardened outer layer on her body. She lay at the bottom of the lake slowly dying when two arms grabbed hold of her and carried her to the shore. The arms were attached to a creature this creature was composed of water. Two euclase gems sat in this creatures eyesockets. He had six wings of rushing water. He watched over her while she lay upon the shore. She didn't awaken for hours. He quickly became concerned for this mysterious woman's safety. He dove back into the lake to see if there would be anything useful to help her. He found a few of her possessions which had scattered around the lake bottom during the explosion. He found three things of interest. One item was her spear. The shaft of the spear was of a dark purple wood that was unknown to him. The creature found the spearhead to be of a strange metal. The metal was as hard as steel and was chrome green. A ring sat within the spearhead. This ring was composed of smaller rings each segmented into five triangles. The triangles had inscriptions upon them. The inscriptions were different for each triangle. One inscription read Domarnu Cuisnic, and another read, Svesu Alticno Pinqum-Sist. The second item was her shield. The shield was of the same metal of the spearhead. It had star garnets socketed into the rim of the shield. The third thing he found was a set of armor made of the same metal of the spear and shield. He brought her possessions to her and set them beside her. He then sat nearby and waited for her to become conscious.
He waited patiently for her to awake. She awoke after three hours. She coughed a bit of water up and then struggled to sit up. When she sat up, she became aware of the creature's presence. She struggled to her feet using her spear as a crutch. The creature had stood up when the woman had started to stand up. She gained her balance and swung the spear in his direction. The spearhead stopped a few inches short of the creature's chest.
"Who are you and where am I?" she asked, waiting for the creature's response. He was shocked by her aggression towards him. He regained his composure after a moment.
"My name is Jaa, and you were at the bottom of Lake Xuwhyl before I rescued you," he answered, "and who might you be?"
"My name is Novaci, and I was a respected warrior, who killed many enemies," she replied, "do not cross me lest you want to wind up like them."
"I do not wish to hurt you," he said assuringly, "in fact, I am the reason you're alive." Jaadeald walked a few paces back after saying this. He turned and gestured to Novaci to pass.
"I will not stand in your way, but what do you intend to do?" he asked hesitantly.
"I don't know, but I think I might need medical attention," she said, "where can I go to get that?"
"The humans here would try to kill you, and I would help but I might accidently kill you in the process," he said, "but, I can take you to Edya, she may be able to help."
"How exactly am I supposed to get to Edya?" she asked. Jaa stood silent for several seconds before he came up with an idea.
"Don't panic, and stay still," he said assuringly. He closed his eyes and a chant sprung forth from his lips.
"Teupum navu oi ihl posjesenil zo Novaci oghad u ahl matca zo Edya ahl povreysa!" Jaa chanted. A blinding light surrounded the two, and when the light subsided they were gone.
